Storyline

Wealthy Mumbai-based Rajiv while carrying out excavation comes across an ancient statute of Bhagwan Shri Ganpati. His workers request him to build a small temple, but he refuses although his family, including his mother and wife, Arati, & maid, Laxmi, worship a variety of Hindu Deities including Satyanarayan Devji and Bhagwan Shri Hanuman. When Rajiv finds that two of his associates, Anshuman and Madhu, have embezzled money, he humiliates and fires them on the spot. Madhu decides to avenge this humiliation by putting Rajiv's daughter, Raksha, under a black magic spell. The family calls in Dr. Pandey - who does not find anything physically wrong with her but hastily changes his mind after re-examining her at their residence, and calls in Psychiatrist Seema Walke. Arati and her mother-in-law are convinced that Raksha is possessed and call in a Tantri, but Rajiv decides to admit her in a hospital under the care of the aforementioned doctors. He will soon regret this decision after a ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Fantastic and unique
17 September 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I cant believe some people are saying this film was poor, well i guess some people have shite taste. This movie is a little predictable fair enough, but if you are a expert like myself then 90% of movies are predictable. Thats not the point, the point is this film is a little different from other horror movies. It seems like a ghost has possessed the little girl in the film, but you later find out its something else. The subject in this movie is something rarely seen in movies and that is black magic. I personally know consequences of black magic and have seen how dangerous and evil it is. Black magic is no surprise in some parts of asia and many parts of Africa. Most Nigerian African movies are about black magic. Maybe some people don't believe in it, but this film portrays it beautifully. Superb acting and Excellent direction. Great movie for people with good taste.
